As of late… our favorites #2

Favorites #2 - The cat, you and us

Do you remember how on April we started a new section under our “As of late” series featuring our favorites? Well, finally here we are with its second edition, featuring an illustration, a documentary recommendation and clothing hair accessories.

Although we were not planning on making it a regular section (unlike our section snapshots) we definitely didn’t envision not repeating in 5 months, phew! Let’s make amends…

We are definitely best friend material if you know what this quote is all about, ha, just kidding! Probably if you are able to put up with all my babbling of this blog we definitely would be friends in real life, even if you haven’t got the slimmest clue.

In Omnia Paratus Gilmore Girls - The cat, you and us

For my birthday Dani had the brilliant idea of buying a Gilmore Girls wonderful illustration by WindowShopGal.

If you have ever watched the mother & daughter show, you will probably remember this is from season 5 when Rory is completely fascinated with Logan (a Yale guy), although he is everything her grandparents would love and that she would despise. The proud Logan has never been in my favorite Rory’s +1 list (I’m in Jess team), but the image of the umbrella and the fancy dresses is too irresistible.

And I know… it looks as we are unable to make a favorites or moodboard post without adding any Gilmore Girls reference. I’ll try to control myself on the next edition, promise!

Vivian Maier

Have you heard about Vivian Maier, the nanny photographer? On 2007 a history researcher bought a trunk containing negatives from the 50s and 60s from an unknown author, to surprisingly discover that the pictures had excellent quality and museum category. Since then the popularity of the photographer only has increased, for the eccentricity of Vivian and her particular way of seeing the world hiding behind a Rolleiflex camera.

All the story is much better explained in the Vivian Maier documentary, that it has more a thriller than documentary vibe. Totally worthy, specially if you love photography.

Luckily we had the chance to watch the documentary and a couple of days later, were able to see some of the pictures in an exhibit here in Barcelona called “in her own hands”. I was specially intrigued by the former self-portraits. Here there is a list of next exhibitions in the Vivian Maier foundation website, make sure to check it out if you have anyone near you.

Headbands mania

I couldn’t end this favorite posts without featuring my accessory obsession with headbands. I know you can wear it in so many ways, but I only favor the “bunny” knot and the bow. I have learnt to do the bow (without using any clips) with just a few seconds, can you tell I am proud about it? Ha! I know it’s not a super skill, but it makes me smile.

Which are your last obsessions? Have you been to the movies? Any one we should watch? Or maybe a tv show? I would love to read your recommendations!

    Anything GG makes me swoon! Love the poster.

    I’ve been meaning to check out the Vivian Maier documentary since seeing the trailer. Looks so good! Most recently we saw Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years at the cinema – I’d definitely recommend it, but as a huge Beatles fan I may be slightly biased. ^‿^

    You know whats funny, I recently started watching gilmore girls because I know you recommended it before, I’m only 2 episodes in but I’m going to give it a whirl for you Damaris!! he he he he. That doco has also been on my list to watch for sure and oh my gosh how cute are the headbands. I really like those slim ones and the bunny knot, I think all my headbands are way too big to wear like that, but I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled for a cute one I think!!

      How sweet you are dear Fee! A couple of days ago Dani told me there is a Netflix study which states the specific episode for each tv show people got massively hooked up and with Gilmore Girls it’s supposedly the 7th of season 1. My favorite thing from the show, more than the pop reference fast talk of the girls (and that is a lot) is the town itself: I’m completely in love with Stars Hollow and its quirky inhabitants. And I think one of my favorite ever episodes is “They Shoot Gilmores, Don’t They?” (Season 3, hope you get that long!). Big hug!

    Oh I love that they did a study, I’m totally guilty of watching one episodes and saying to Ben I don’t love the show and next thing I’m hooked. I did it recently with braindead and lady dynamite which by the end of the season I loved both :P So I’m learning to be more open minded. I actually enjoyed the first two episodes of gilmore girls, I’ve just had so many podcasts to catch up on and I started twin peaks as well, so I’m working my way through all of that before I get back on the GG train! Watching and listen to things makes editing photos so much more fun :) :) I will definitely get up to episode 7 and let you know if I’m on the hooked train!!
